The United States, and all the world’s nations but nine, signed the Single Convention Treaty of 1961, which established cannabis as a Class I narcotic.

But then a substantial percentage of the people of the United States, in direct contravention to the laws of the land, accepted cannabis as a favored medication and recreation, and began planting a cannabis industry.

Voters took up the cannabis cause and voted down cannabis laws in states throughout the United States. And the cannabis industry kept growing.

Soon, one of the nation’s biggest states, California, will vote on legalizing the recreational use of cannabis. If passed by its voters, California’s cannabis industry could blossom into the mainstream.

But wait! According to the Single Convention Treaty, cannabis is a Class I narcotic, and according to Article VI of the Constitution: the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby.

Thus we have the cannabis industry conundrum:

Can a legitimate industry thrive on an illegitimate crop?
